For the publishers on this board, this might be of interest:

Woolworths Retail and Entertainment UK have
been placed in administration and Deloittes have been appointed as
administrators. The IPG Chairman Will Atkinson and Bridget Shine had a
phone meeting with Chris Rushby, Buying Director and Michael Neil,
Managing Director of Bertrams earlier today. They stated that the
Bertram Group has not gone into administration. It is outside of the
Woolworths Group financing facilities and continues to trade as a going
concern. They said that they have been in touch with Deloittes who
confirmed their intention that Bertrams will continue to operate as a
going concern until a new owner for the Bertram Group is found.

Thanks Andrew I didn't realise that Bertrams were linked to Woolies.

Received the attached from the latest Independent Publishers Guild newsletter:

Bertrams tell us that they are continuing to pursue the sale of this business, whilst trading normally and outside of administration. They have concluded temporary supply agreements with a number of publishers and distribution houses and are talking to others. If you want to talk to Bertrams, please call Chris Rushby on tel: 0870 429 5893 chris.rushby@bertrams.com
